Learning Design Centre

We begin our module design with the end in mind, using an assessment-first approach. Starting with desired learning outcomes, clearly stated in measurable terms, then working backwards through authentic teaching and learning activities, supported with high quality content.
Digital Education Team

UCEM’s educational framework provides the foundation upon which we deliver student centred online education.  We are committed to providing a student experience that is authentic, flexible, accessible and inclusive to all those who are building a career to enhance our built environment.

Reviewing your Online ModuLE

When it’s time to review your existing module there are a number of resources available to support you to reflect on the module content, student experience and module design. Find out more about the process. 


OUR Design Jams

Every new module we develop begins with a Design Jam! This two-day engaging hands-on workshop will bring module teams together to storyboard the student journey using a specially developed set of learning types.

Tutor Support

We have a repository on SharePoint which provides a range of resources, guides and  templates that reflect our pedagogy and evidence-based practice. During your scheduled module development phase you will work with a dedicated learning designer from the Digital Education Team.

Available to UCEM staff only.

We have made many of our learning design resources available under Creative Commons for adaption and reuse.
